SHISEIDO | VEILED ROUGE

shiseido-veiled-rouge

I'm really into sheer, simple lips at the moment as I find they really make my lips look super juicy. That's not mentioning they're so easy to wear! One of my current favourite shades is actually from Shiseido which isn't a brand I usually gravitate towards. I have a Veiled Rouge Lipstick* (£19.50) in the shade PK304 which is a gorgeous soft, peachy pink combo that I absolutely adore.

The formula of these lipsticks is lovely, very nourishing and non-sticky whilst giving a lovely pop of colour on the lips. Obviously, as the lipstick is a sheer formula it isn't particularly long lasting but the colour fades down nicely and doesn't go patchy or gloopy at all plus you can layer it and have no problems.

The packaging itself is quite thin which I like as it's a good, compact size for your handbag and I think the only downside - and I'm being pedantic - is that the shade name is a code rather than a name  which is ridiculous because it's really not that important. 

What type of finish are you loving at the moment?

LIFESTYLE | SLATE NQ LEEDS


I must admit, whenever I go into Leeds I'm often dumbfounded at the amount of new places opening. I'm getting on a bit now and I don't go out as often as I used to but when I do, I much prefer bars than clubs. I always have.

URBAN RETREAT | HIDDEN BEAUTY GEMS



I think it's pretty safe to say that the world of online beauty shopping is forever expanding with the list of sites to visit continually growing. What really stands out to me is that need to try new products and brands as well as hard to get hold of products. As a beauty blogger and all round cosmetics junkie, I'm always striving to try the latest innovations and find new holy grail items.

NARS COSMETICS | THE GREATEST BRUSH OF ALL TIME?


For the longest time, I've flittered between different brushes for sculpting those cheekbones - I've tried tapered brushes, small brushes and heck even larger eyeshadow brushes! I'd lusted after the NARS Kabuki Ita Brush (£43.00) for what felt like an eternity until I just couldn't hack life without it. I managed to pick up the brush for a slightly more affordable price in Sephora and I haven't looked back!

What I love about this brush is the shape, it is flat and rectangular and whilst it looks incredibly dense it's actually got a good amount of movement which makes blending an absolute dream. The handle is very lightweight which means you can have a bit more freedom when you're using it. When applying powder contour, it takes me mere seconds to carve out and blend the product to give me a much slimmer, contoured face. It works equally as well on the sides of my nose as it does on my cheekbones. 

I'm completely besotted with this brush and I am thrilled I took the plunge and picked it up!

Have you tried this brush or anything similar?

ELIZABETH AND JAMES | NIRVANA BLACK

elizabeth-and-james-nirvana-black

You might remember that I picked up the Elizabeth and James Nirvana White back in December when I was in Australia and I really kicked myself for not picking up the black version. Well, I went straight for the roller balls in New York and came away with it!

PRIMING WITH PIXI | FLAWLESS & PORELESS

pixi-by-petra-review

Pixi is a brand that I keep hearing lots about but haven't actually tried - until now. I was contacted by up and coming US beauty site - Beauty Bridge who stock various brands including Pixi, Too Faced, NUXE and more. They also have international shipping too so we don't miss out!
